Prosperity Still Attends 

The Brethren Colonies 

I the... 

Northern Pacific Railway... 

In North Dakota, Idaho and Washin^on. 



IN CENTRAL NORTH DAKOTA where the Brethren are located in large numbers, 
Carrington, Sykeston, Bowden, Barlow, New Rockford, Sheyenne, and Oberon, the flax 
)p is each year becoming more important, while diversified farming never fails. f>ee 
)vernment land in Wells and McLean counties. A branch line has been built in a north- 
:sterly direction from Oberon to Esmond, 28 miles, and the line from Carrington to Bow- 
n is being extended another 26 miles, so that it now taps eastern McLean County. Ex- 
llent grazing and farming lands farther west at very low prices. Reduced Rates for the 
nefit of Settlers are Now in Effect. 

IN IDAHO the Northern Pacific Extensions south and east from Lewiston, Idaho, 
)ng the Clearwater River, are opening up wonderfully wealthy farm, fruit, timber and 
neral lands. Now is the time to invest there. Many Brethren are located irj the Nez 
rce Reservation and in the Clearwater country. 

THE SUNNYSIDE DISTRICT OF THE YAKIMA VALLEY IN CENTRAL 
ASHINGTON is one of the best irrigation propositions in the United States. In a letter 
:eived from Elder D. B. Eby, of Sunnyside, Washington, he says: 

:. C. W. MoTT, Sunnyside. Wash., Aug. 6, 1901. 

Gen'l Emigration Agent N. P. R'y, St. Paul, Minn. 

Dear Sir :—Th\s has been a year of unprecedented growth ard development for the Sunnyside country, and 
ng to the failures east and south, the immigration to this valley this fall promises to surpass anything in 
vious years. The immense hay crop again being harvested this season places beyond dispute the advan- 
es of irrigation and a fertile soil. 

-While we expect a few weeks of hot weather in the valley, yet, when compared wit!) the intense heat report- 
all tlirough the central and eastern States, our summer so far has been exceptionally comfortable, the higli- 
tcmperature registered so far in the shade being 98 degrees, which, owing to much less humidity in the 
icsphere, would not be more oppressive than 80 degrees in the eastern and middle States. 
Tiie village of Sunnyside is rapidly building up, having this summer added thre6 church houses and a num- 
of residences as improvements. The Brethren have a neat and comfortable church house 32x50, located 
trallyin town, with two preaching services, one Sunday-school and ibn^-yoyng people's meeting each Sun- 
', with good attendance. < ' i. 

Climatically, socially, religiously and commercially, we are quite IKell pleased with our home in Washing 
. a*id are here to stay. The frujt is abundant and fine in quality.- ' **« Yours Truly,

Brethren's 
PLAIN CLOTHING. 



In many communities where Brethren reside you will find members not wearing plain 
clothing. If asked why, they will tell you that they cannot get them, or if they can, that 
the price is too high. We are pleased to state that the facilities we enjoy for manufactur- 
ing enables us to place plain clothing within the reach of all. Our prices are not only as 
reasonable as other clothing, but in most cases they are cheaper 
when quality is considered. All goods are made to special order 
and hence we can cater to the individual wants of every customer. 
If you like your coat a little longer or shorter, or cut different in 
front from the regulation style you can have it. 

Many members are slow about ordering, because they think 
they cannot send the correct measure, and therefore, not get a 
good fit. Do not hesitate on this account. Our system of self- 
measurement is so complete and simple we seldom make mis- 
takes, and w^hen w^e do, we stand it, and not the customer. With 
every measurement sent, the customer is required to send his 
height, weight, and shape of his shoulders, and this enables us to 
correct any errors in the measures and make a good fit. 




,We Always Guarantee Satisfaction. 



And refer to our many patrons, some of whom will be found 
in nearly any community where the Brethren reside. Samples of 
cloth from which we make our clothing, measuring blanks, tape- 
line and rules for ordering will be sent on application. 
Special inducements will be made to members clubbing together and ordering cloth- 
ing at one time. 

While we make a specialty of plain clothing, we make other styles as well, and they 
can be ordered from the same samples. This will often be of great assistance in getting 
club orders, as very often neighbors who are not members will order along with you.

Writes Mr. L. Sides, of Farmersville, Texas, "as far as 40 and 50 miles, To get the Blood Vitalizer of me, 
and I am glad to say that nine cases out of every ten report a complete cure. There is the case of Mr. 
James Barnett, a prominent cotton-planter in Blue Ridge. He used the Blood Vitalizer for a cancerous 
growth on the nose. The sore got well, his health improved, and he ^s to-day that the Vitalizor is the 
best medicine on earth." 



Brethren s Family Alma7iac, 



FROn RAYSHEYA TO HASBEYA. 



Tourists who have traveled through Pal- 
estine and have given a written description 
of their trip, have always given special at- 
tention to the more notable places named in 
Bible story, because they supposed that they 
would be of more general interest to the 
rCfider. But these places have been de- 
scribed so often that they have become 
common. And because of this we will give 
a short description of a few places that are 
uncommon, and yet they are located in Pal- 
estine, and even to-day are representative 



— young boys who took considerable pride 
in reading for us in the Syriac language. 

In the evening just before sundown we 
had a group picture taken which we give 
here so that you can have some idea of the 
place, the people and the surroundings. 
'I'he man with the white skirt is the English 
teacher or missionary. It will be seen that 
he has adopted the Oriental style of dress. 
By so doing we were informed he was able 
to fall into the graces of the people much 
more readily, and as a result disarm their 
prejudices and do them more good. It is 




in Oriental character, and the places and 
people, in their customs and habits of life, 
continue to shed light on the interpretations 
of Bible truths. 

During our late trip from Damascus to 
Jerusalem, Raysheya was our third tenting 
ground. It is located in the hilly country 
of Galilee, built on a hill, and had a popula- 
tion of some five thousand. The greater 
pan of these are sSlid to be Christians, a 
mere discrimination between them and the 
Mohammedans. They are called Druses, 
v/hich gives no key to the character of their 
religion. Neither could we define it should 
we try. At this place there are several 
Protestant missions — English and Ameri- 
can. While there we had the pleasure of 
meeting some of the workers and students 



tlic Pauline theory of becoming all things 
to all men so that if possible he might win 
some. It is always the proper thing to 
du when it can be done without violating a 
principle. 

In the rear of the party who came out 
to us you see the tents in which we 
ate and slept during our trip. And in the 
background you see a few sample houses 
of the city. Being built on the hillside, you 
get on the top of them before you are 
aware of it. It would be interesting to 
tell how these people live, their customs

and did all they could to make us feel at

of the religion of the Bible. Where the

truths of the Bible touch the people's hearts, 
t. ere you will find friendship and love. 

Raysheya is the ancient Baal god named 
in Joshua 11:17. Here we had our first 
view of Mt. Hermon. And south of the 
place is the most northern source of the 
Jordan, running southward as it gushes out 
from among the rocks in a beautiful stream 
large enough to run a good-sized mill. 

After spending a pleasant night at this 
ph'ice/' early in the morning our tents were 
taken down, and we started for a six hours' 
ride towards Hasbeya. The accompanying 




cut will show how our comj»giny looked 
just before ^ starting. It also giv'CS some 
idea of the country. The stony ground 
spoken of in the parable of the sower is 
found in abundance all over this country. 
During the dry season it has the appearance 
of a rocky desert; everything is parched 
and dried up. But when the wet season 
comes, being a limestone soil, it is wonder- 
ful to see the growth. It is a white lime- 
stone soil and would be very fertile if prop- 
erh'- cared for and cultivated. 

As we journeyed southward the only pro- 
tection we had from the blazing sun was a 
few fig and olive trees and the great rocks. 
As we saw these great projecting rocks we 
were reminded of singing : " Lead me to 
the rock that is higher than I," " Hide me 
in the shadow of the rock," and the many 
references that the psalmist makes to the 
rocks as being places of refuge and safety. 



After a day of hard riding we reached 
Hasbeya and pitched our tents for the night. 
Here we were received much the same as 
the evening before. The whole city turned 
out to see the American strangers in their 
light dresses and viewed us with wonder, 
if not with admiration. The women folks 
and children especially thought we were 
odd-looking creatures. But their strong de- 
sires for backsheesh drove away all their 
fears, and they were uncomfortably friend- 
ly and close. Here, too, were several 
Protestant missions 
which had a very 
good effect on the 
minds and the ac- 
tions of the people. 
They had better 
manners, were 
more civilized and 
more cleanly than 
those we met far- 
ther south. 

Before we got to 
this place we had 
the pleasure of 
fording the Has- 
bany, being one of 
the sources of the 
Jordan. This was 
because of hearing 
so much about this 
noted stream, and of its getting so low dur- 
ing the dry season that it would be impossi- 
ble to perform baptism by immersion during 
a considerable part of the year. As it was 
then about the close of the dry season it 
would be at its very lowest, and we were 
astonished to find a stream, only about one- 
third the size of the Jordan, large, and full 
enough to immerse in it all that could desire 
baptism. To us, one story about the size of 
the Jordan was forever settled. 

Though these towns are not named in 
Bible story, yet they are in Bible land and 
near the location of Mt. Hermon, about 
which prophets preach, sages speak, poets 
write and we sing. To us it was the way 
posts of Bible story wherever we looked. 
The mountains, the hills, the streams, val- 
leys, trees, men, beasts, birds and dogs all 
said: Yes, what the Bible says is true. 
Open your eyes, look and behold ; all around

from day to day." Such reports are indeed encouraging.

we thanked God that, through his provi- 
dences, we were permitted to see these

We were especially impressed with this

it being an introduction to that which was 
before and of still greater interest to us as

EDUCATION AND OUR CHURCH. 



BY S. Z. SHARP. 

Long before the German Baptist church 
was organized in 1708 at Schwarzenau, 
Germany, all the religious principles which 
distinguish this church from others were 
held and advocated by scholarly men who 
were either instructors in universities, or 
had received a university education. To 
the writings of such men who were noted 
for their deep piety, and who had made a 
profound study of their subjects, it is that 
our early church members are indebted for 
the light that led them to adopt the New 
Testament as their rule of faith and prac- 
tice. 

Soon after the Reformation in 1852, head- 
ed by Luther and others, both the Lutheran 
and Reformed churches drifted into a state 
of formalism and retrogression. This in- 
duced Johann Arndt, born in 1555, to write 
that excellent work entitled " True Chris- 
tianity " which was translated into nearly all 
modern languages and read by the millions 
and among them our early church fathers. 
The object of this book was to awaken the 
reader to a sense of his true spiritual con- 
dition. This writer was educated at sev- 
eral universities and was noted for his 
learning as well as for his piety. 

Jean Paul de La Badie, born in 1610 and 
educated in the French College at Bordeaux, 
afterward became a Protestant minister and 
may be regarded as the father of that mys- 
ticism which exerted so great an influence 
over some of our early members, notably 
Conrad Beisel, the founder of that mystic- 
al society at Ephrata, Pa. 

Jeremias Felbinger, born in Brieg, Sile- 
sia, 1616, was a ripe scholar in Latin, Greek, 
Llebrew, Hollandic and German. He trans- 
lated the New Testament into German and 



also wrote the "Christian Hand Book," that 
treats of trine immersion, against infant 
baptism, taking an oath, and in favor of 
feet-washing and other principles as now 
held by the German Baptist Brethren 
church. 

William Penn, born in 1644 and educated 
at Christ Church, Oxford, England, wrote 
many tracts on nonresistance, nonswearing, 
and nonconformity to the world, just as 
lu^ld by our Brethren to-day. He traveled 
extensively in Germany and paved the way 
for our Brethren to come to his colony at 
Germantown, Pa. 

Philip Jacobus Spener, born in Alsace, 
Germany, and educated in the university of 
Strasburg, where he was also instructor, 
vvas the founder of the societies of Pietists. 
He organized members' meetings in the 
churches, which were kept up in the Re- 
formed church for awhile by Alexander 
Mack and his associates before forming a 
separate organization. 

Gottfried Arnold, born at Annaberg, Sax- 
ony, in 1666, and educated at Wittenberg, 
not only advocated the same principles 
taught by Spener, but advocated separation 
from the established state churches. He 
advocated believer's baptism, trine immer- 
sion, nonswearing, nonresistance, feet-wash- 
ing, the salutation, and anointing with oil 
the sick in the name of the Lord. 

August Hermann Franke, born in 1663, 
studied at the universities of Erfurth, Kiel, 
and Leipsic. He was instructor at Halle, 
where he printed the Bible which served as 
a copy for Christopher Sauer, a German 
Baptist minister, to print his Bibles at Ger- 
mantown, Pa. 

Ernst Christoph Hochman, born at Lau- 
enburg, Germany, in 1670, was an eminent 
scholar and theologian. He studied at the 
university at Halle under Francke. He 
became the immediate forerunner and as- 
sociate of Alexander Mack. He traveled 
over Germany and by his preaching pro- 
duced a wonderful spiritual awakening. 
While imprisoned in 1702 he wrote out a 
confession of faith, which, perhaps, more 
than anything outside of the New Tes- 
tament helped to crystalize the faith of 
our Brethren into a systematic form. 

When the church was organized in 1708, 
Llochmann was imprisoned in Nuremburg,

but in a book kept by Alexander Mack, of 
the names of the members, Ernst Christoph 
Hochman is named as one of them. 

Alexander Mack is mentioned as a man 
of education, though history fails to record 
where he was educated. It is a matter of 
great satisfaction to know that not a trace 
can be found of those doubtful and contro- 
verted doctrines clinging to the German 
Baptist church, which were taught by the 
illiterate, mystic, Boehme, but all those who, 
acting as guiding stars to the first members 
of our church were not only men of ac- 
knowledged piety, but men of profound 
learning as well, who could study the Scrip- 
tures in their original languages. This was 
the relation of our church to education at 
its beginning. 



HISTORY OF THE ELKLICK CON- 
GREGATION, PA. 



BY C. G. LINT. 

In the last half of the eighteenth century 
the Brethren from the eastern part of the 
State began to move westward, crossing the 
AUeghanies, and settled on the western 
slope of the mountain at a place called the 
Glndes. This was then in Bedford County, 
Pennsylvania. They soon began to increase 
in number by immigration and conversion, 
and began to spread westward and north- 
ward in the county, coming westward as 
far as the Castleman River, sixteen or eight- 
een miles from the starting point. While 
the territory was large, the numerical 
growth was not as rapid. The ministerial 
force had to come from the east and south, 

Then in the early part of the nineteenth 
century they began to bring to the front 
strong- and able men in the ministry of their 
own material. The preaching was all done 
in dwelling houses, and in the German lan- 
guage. Brethren John Forney, Peter Co- 
ber and Jacob Meyers were looked upon not 
only as able in the ministry, but quite -pro- 
gressive or aggressive; so that before the 
century had half passed over the numerical 
strength had increased to the extent that in 
1845 they built a large meetinghouse close 
to the town of Berlin ; and in 1846 built the 
large meetinghouse close to Summit Mills, 
three miles west of Meyersdale. This per- 



haps is the largest meetinghouse owned by 
the Brethren. Before the building of these 
meetinghouses brethren John Beeghley, Ja- 
cob Lichty and John Berkley were elected 
to the ministry, on the river side of the ter- 
ritory. The meetings were held alternate- 
ly, one Sunday on the Glade side and the 
next on the river side. 

Near the close of the eighteenth century 
tliere were some eight persons baptized in 
the Flagerty, the stream that runs by our 
meetinghouse in Meyersdale, not over five 
hundred yards from the meetinghouse. 

In 1849 application was made to Annual 
Meeting for a committee to look into the 
advisability of districting this large terri- 
tory into smaller territories, and if in their 
judgment it seemed proper to do so, to di- 
vide and organize, etc. The following com- 
mittee was appointed : Peter Long, Andrew 
Spanogle and John Holsinger from Penn- 
sylvania, Joseph Arnold and Jacob Biser 
from Virginia, George Hoke and Henry 
Knriz from Ohio. In the same year the 
division was made. Berlin, Peter Cober 
and Jacob Meyers bishops; Quemahoning, 
John Forney bishop ; Middlecreek, Jacob S. 
Hauger was ordained ; Elklick, John Berk- 
ley and Jacob Lichty were ordained. John 

Beeghly and Livengood had passed 

away some years before this. 

I shall now confine myself to Elklick. At 
tlie time when the division was made, Bro. 
John B. Meyers, who' afterwards moved to 
Ohio, and Samuel Berkley, who died in 
1S59, were elected to the ministry. The 
deacons were David Beeghly, Jacob Fike 
and Jonathan Lichty. In about 1850 or '52 
brethren Elias K. Buechly, who in the ear- 
ly sixties moved to Waterloo, Iowa, and 
David Livengood, who died in 1870, were 
elected to the ministry. In 1852 they built 
a meetinghouse in Meyers Mills, now Mey- 
ersdale, and about the same time one at 
Berkleys Mills and a few years later one 
in Greenville and joined in with the Men- 
nonites and built one near Salisbury. This 
was before 1855. The four meetinghouses 
and part of one made five places to preach, 
preaching still in German as a rule. Dur- 
ing this time Bro. Paul Wetzel was elected 
to the ministry. He afterwards moved to 
Illinois. The deacons at this time were 
brethren David Beeghly, Jonathan Lich-

Mrs. Mary Naftziger, Palmyra, Pa., writes: "I was an invalid for over 40 years with a complication of 
diseases, Fainting Spells, Nervousness, Neuralgia, Weak Stomach, etc. I tried all kinds of doctors and 
medicines, but never got well, until I commenced using Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer. May God have all the 
honor and praise, from whom comes every good and perfect gift."

ty, John J. Fike, Emanuel Lichty, Wm. M. 
Buechly and Wm. M. Horner. 

In the year 1855 the membership was not 
over two hundred. On June 16 the writer 
of this article, with fifteen others, was bap- 
tized by Bro. Jacob Blough, of the Berlin 
district, the same day being council meet- 
ing day. There was an election held for 
deacons on the same day. Four were elect- 
ed, Samuel P. Miller, Elias Berkley, Peter 
Berkley and the writer. 

On the twenty-fourth day of the same 
month, June, at a love feast held at the big 
meetinghouse, there was an election held 
for speakers, ihree were chosen, Peter 
Berkley, who died in 1865, William M. Hor- 
ner, who died in 1872, and the writer. Soon 
after, or about 1857, David Beeghly was 
chcsen to the ministry, and moved to Iowa 
in 1863. Bro. John Croys moved into this 
district in 1857, and shortly afterward 
m(>ved to Ohio. Following in the minis- 
try by election were D. M. Miller, now in 
Illinois, Jonathan Kelso, now in Nebraska, 
Jonas Lichty, dead, Joel Gnagy, at Summit 
Mills, Silas Keim, dead. In 1871 H. R. 
Holsinger (Progressive), J. W. Beer (Pro- 
gressive) and J. B. Sell moved to Indiana; 
James Quinter (dead) moved into the dis- 
trict, and before 1876 all had moved away 
again. 

In 1875 Bro. John Berkley died, and in 
the year following the writer was ordained 
to the eldership. 

In 1877 the membership of the Elklick 
church was six hundred or more, and in 
the same year it was divided into three 
districts, namely, Summit, Jonas Lichty, 
Joel Gnagy and John A. Miller, ministers; 
Elklick, Jonathan Kelso, Silas Keim and J. 
B. Sell, ministers; Meyersdale, with C. G. 
Line. Meyersdale had three meetinghouses 
and about two hundred and sixty members, 
five deacons, S. P. Miller, dead ; Emanuel 
Lichty, dead; Elijah J. Faidley, in Iowa; 
Samuel J. Miller, W. G. Lint. 

In 1878 an election for two ministers was 
held. H. M. Berkley was never installed. 
John R. Lichty went Progressive, and is in 
Nebraska. 

in 1879 brethren E. K. Hochstetler, Sam 
P. Maust and W. D. Braucher were elected 
to the ministry. W. D. Braucher moved 
to the Middlecreek district. 



In 1882 we rebuilt the house in Meyers- 
dale, and in 1892 we rebuilt the house in 
Greenville. It is built for communion serv- 
ices, and in 1898 we purchased a large 
meetinghouse in Hyndman. At this time 
we have four good meetinghouses, about 
three hundred and fifty to sixty members, 
six ministers, Eld. C. G. Lint, E. K. Hoch- 
stetler, Samuel P. Maust, I. C. Johnson, E. 
F. Clark, Thomas Hardin and Daniel Clap- 
per, seventeen deacons, S. J. Miller, J. D. 
Gnagy, W. G. Lint, Milton M. Horner, Elias 
Schrock, D. M. Fike, Harvey L. Griffith, D. 
F. Shumaker, Cyrus A. Just, A. O. Beal, 
James Murray, Jacob Hochstetler, Joel Yut- 
v.y, Samuel Hochstetler, Samuel Wimer, 
Benjamin Hardin and J. H. Brumbaugh. 

Since 1877 we lost three deacons by 
death, G. P. Mill-er, Emanuel Lichty and 
Charles Griffith. No minister has died in 
this time. We have three Sunday schools, 
two evergreen, Hyndman and Meyersdale; 
we have been having Sunday school at Mey- 
ersdale for forty-five years. We have four 
love feasts in our district every year. 

The Annual Meeting was held four times 
within the bounds of Elklick district, twice 
in what is now Summit and twice in Mey- 
ersdale. The first love feast held was over 
one hundred years ago and was held on the 
farm now owned by Bvb. J. W. Peck. The 
farm joins Meyersdale. The first baptizing 
known was done in Flagerty, the stream 
that runs by our meetinghouse in Meyers- 
dale, not over five hundred yards from the 
church stand. This was yet in the eight- 
eenth century. Seven were the number, 
and a Bowman from Virginia officiated. 



PULLING TEETH. 



An Indianapolis dentist has given up the 
use of forceps for pulling teeth and has 
adopted the primitive method of the Chi- 
nese, using nothing but his thumb and index 
finger. He considers that the sight of the 
forceps themselves is responsible for much 
of the harrowing part of tooth-pulling and 
that many nervous persons are greatly 
shocked by the sight of these instruments. 
The pain is also said to be less. He can 
take out the most firmly rooted double tooth 
in a few seconds. He learned this art from 
a Chinese practitioner.

HISTORY OF THE MISSSISSINEWA 
CHURCH, DELAWARE CO., IND. 



BY GEO. L. STUDEBAKER. 

As early as 1838 several families of the 
Brethren had located in Delaware County, 
Indiana, on the Mississinewa river. In the 
fall of this year elders Isaac Karns, John 
Darst and John Crumrine, from Miami Val- 
ley, Ohio, visited these members and ad- 
vised them to hold regular meetings, which 
tliey did for over two years, having no 
preacher or deacon. It will be observed by 
this that these elders at this early date en- 
couraged social meetings. 

In the spring of 1841 John Younce, a min- 
ister from Miami County, Ohio, moved in, 
and the church was organized. Geo. W. 
and John U. Studebaker were elected dea- 
cons. In the spring of 1842 Geo. W. was 
ciiosea to the ministry. He was ordained 
to the full ministry in the spring of 1850. 
He moved to Fredonia, Wilson county, 
Kansas, in the spring of 1882, having sefved 
the church faithfully for forty years in the 
niinistr}^ He was one of the charter mem- 
bers of the church and is the only one now 
living. He still resides at Fredonia, Kans. 

In the fall of 1843 David and John S. 
Studebaker were chosen to the ministry. In 
1846 John S. moved to Carroll County, 



Indiana, and is still living. David Stude- 
baker moved to Miami County, Ohio, in 
1855 and died in August, 1863. He was 
highly respected and loved by all who knew 
hin]. 

In 1844 David Rench and Jacob Cunkle 
were elected deacons. Both have deceased. 
Ill 1846 John Younce was ordained and was 
ihe first elder of the church. 

In the fall of 1847 John U. Studebaker 
was chosen to the ministry, and was or- 
dained in the spring of 1859. He had the 
charge of the church for a number of years. 
Because of age and infirmity he r'esigned 
Nov. 5, 1895. He was a safe adviser and 
a good housekeeper. He died Aug. 15, 
1901, having served the church over fifty 
years in the ministry. 

Alex. Snider was elected to the deacon's 
office in November, 1852, and Jacob Burg 
in 1854. Bro. Burg died April 10, 1874. 
John Snyder and Jacob Gump were elected 
deacons in 1855. Bro. Gump died Feb. 10, 
1889. In the fall of 1862 Samuel Studeba- 
ker, a deacon, moved from Richland Coun- 
ty, Illinois, and Gabriel Karns, a minister in 
the second degree, moved from Clermont 
County, Ohio, in the spring of 1865. 

In the fall of 1867 Isaiah Howard was 
(hosen to the ministry, was advanced to 
the second degree in 1875, ordained and giv- 
en Ihe charge of the Pipe Creek (now Sum-

while, but grew worse all the time. I then commenced to use the Blood Vitalizer, and after taking the con- 
tents of two large bottles and using one bottle of the Oleum, I had regained my health."

BREAKING THE SET.

to make a call. The lady of the house told 
him she meant to ask his mother to let her 
have him. " Don't you think your mother 
would let me buy you ? " she asked. " No, 
ma'am," answered the little fellow; "you 
haven't got money enough." " How much 
would it take?" she continued. "Three 
hundred dollars," said the boy, promptly, as 
if that would settle the matter at once and 
for all. " Oh, well, then," said the woman, 
" I think I can manage it. If I can will you 
come and stay with me ? " " No, ma'am," 
he said with decision. " Mamma wouldn't 
sell me anyhow. There are five of us, and 
mamma wouldn't like to break the set."

DANIEL P. SAYLOR. 



BY J. H. WARSTLER. 

The home of Daniel P. Saylor was 
Double Pipe Creek, Frederick Co., Mary- 
land. When I first learned to know him 
his head was not " silvered over with the 
frosts of many winters," but he was in the 
very prime of life, vigorous and strong 
ph3-sical]y and mentally. He was a power 
in the pulpit. 

There was a place in the northern part 
01 Frederick County, not far from Mason 
and Dixon's line, called Smithfield, where 
he used to preach. In the summer of 1857 
I was working in the neighborhood and 
aitended some of the appointments. One 
Sunday morning he preached from the text 
in Rev. 10:5, 6. Subject, *' Time shall be 
no longer." His opening remarks were 
these : " It is said that there is a time for 
all things, but the wise man also says there 
is a time to all things." The sermon was 
a powerful one, for he seemed to be in his 
element that Sunday morning. 

He attended many of the communions of 
the churches in Pennsylvania and Virginia, 
as well as in Maryland. On one occasion 
during a communion service he arose and 
walked slowly down th^ aisle to the center 
of the house, and facing the congregation 
of spectators (that part of the house was 
full) he began to speak upon the subject 
cti the ordinances of the church, which were 
then being observed. He stood like a 
mighty giant discharging an avalanche of 
words and truths, in thunder tones, that 
seemed to sweep everything in their course. 
Then he quietly returned to his seat, leav- 
ing the people astonished at his effort as 
well as doctrine. 

In debate he was strong and masterful. I 
remember well the discussions on the sin- 
gle mode of feet-washing, and on the di- 
vorce question in 1868 in the Rock Run 
church, Ind. So strong was his language 
in reply to a brother that someone in the 
congregation cried out, " Make Brother 
Saylor take that back," but he appeared as 
though he did not hear it. The divorce 
question was still more tenacious. Every 
inch of the ground was contested; so hard 
seemed the battle that, apparently strength 



exhausted, there was a quiet for a few min- 
utes ; not a word was said ; the silence was 
broken by the act of some one at the ta- 
ble who leaned forward to get a German 
Testament which was lying on the table 
before him. Brother Saylor's quick eye 
saw it and he immediately said, " The 
Brethren refer to the German translation, 
but that does not help them out." The 
brother explained that he did not intend to 
use the book for that purpose. 

He was careful and guarded in common 
conversation, not casting " pearls before 
swine; " no unnecessary words to no effect. 
A certain individual, full of talk and argu- 
ment, attended a communion meeting. 
Next morning after breakfast he tried to 
get a conversation with Brother Saylor, 
but he signally failed, and as he walked 
away some one said, " He wants an argu- 
ment badly." "Yes," said Brother Saylor, 
" but he can't get it of me." 

Elder Saylor was twice married. His 
first wife was a Quaker lady, and she re- 
mained a Quaker till her death. There was 
one daughter upon whom he set great af- 
fections. He would have her often read the 
chapter in the public morning service. At 
tlie age of fifteen years she took sick and 
died ; it was a severe stroke on him, and 
once in referring to the circumstance he 
said, "At the funeral services I had the 
brethren sing: 

The dearest idol I have known, 

Whate'er that idol be; 
Help me to tear it from thy throne, 

And worship only thee." 

He wrote out the forms of installation and 
ordination services which are in use in the 
church to-day. " Blessed are the dead who 
die m the Lord." 
JN^'-zc Paris, Ind. 



YOUR BODY. 



Take good care of your body. The Lord 
gave it to you, and it is the only one you 
are going to get in this world. If you abuse 
it, the loss will be yours. You should 
clothe and feed it well, and while making a 
profitable use of it, you should never over- 
strain any part of it. Do not abuse your 
body by the use of tobacco, with strong 
dring, or by overeating.

Clear Lake, Iowa, " I cannot find words to express the good the Blood Vitalizer has done me, as is also 
the case with my wife and some of my neighbors. I give God the praise. It belongs to Him. People who 
knew how I suffered with rheumatism and other troubles before I used the Blood Vitalizer, and who have 
spent a good many dollars on the doctors, now come to me for medicine. It is truly wonderful in effect."

WHERE THE THREE THOUSAND 
WERE IMMERSED. 



On the west side of Jerusalem there is a 
deep ravine. Coming out of Jaffa gate, and 
going down the road to the southwest, 
the traveler crosses this ravine on a broad 
dam that is nearly forty feet high. This 
d?im was constructed for the purpose of 
forming an immense pool in the deep ravine. 
Over five hundred feet to the north is an- 
other dam, not so high and strong, how- 
ever. The pool thus formed is 550 feet 
long;, 219 feet wide, and over 35 feet deep 
near the dam at the south end. When 
first made it was cemented, and served as 
a reservoir for the waters that came from 
the slopes to the north, east and west dur- 
ing the rainy season. 

It was here that the three thousand con- 
verts may have been immersed on the day 
of Pentecost. On the slopes of the pool, to 
the north the water may have been shallow 
enough for the purpose. Here room could 
have been found for a score or more 
preachers to perform the rite at the same 
time. With such conveniences the three 
thousand could easily have been immersed 
inside of a few hours. At that season of 
the year the weather was warm, and the 
water 'vould have been in a most excellent 
condition for immersion. 

From the pool the ground rises gradual- 
ly to the east and west in such a way as to 
have enabled one hundred thousand people 
10 look upon the sacred and solemn scene. 
To this pool the people may have repaired 
after Peter, or one of the other apostles, 
had told the vast assembly that those who 
had confessed Christ should be baptized. 
After looking the ground over carefully, 
we could see no reason why this may not 
have been the place where the three thou- 
sand were immersed on the day of Pente- 
cost. A more impressive scene was prob- 
ably never before or since witnessed out- 
side of the walls of Jerusalem. 



The nurse found it very difficult to tell 
the two twins apart. After giving the usual 
bath one evening and hearing the children 
laughing in bed, she said, " What are you 
children laughing about?" "Oh, nothing," 
replied Edna, " only you have given Edith 
two baths and haven't given me any." 



PLANTING OF THE CHURCH IN THE 
STATE OF INDIANA. 



BY JACOB RIFE. 

It may be of interest to the members to 
know where and when the first church of 
the German Baptist Brethren was organized 
in tJje Territory of Indiana, seven years 
1)efore it became a State. Fourteen mem- 
bers emigrated from Pennsylvania and 
Virginia from 1804 to 1808, and settled near 
tji.c waters of the Fourmile Creek, in what 
was then called the Twelve Mile purchase 
of the hidians, now called Union County, 
Indiana. The names of the members com- 
prising this little body are as follows: 
Christopher Witter, John Witter, John 
Moyer, Daniel Miller, Abraham Miller, 
James Huston, and their side companions, 
and sisters Ann Lybrook and Phoeba Mil- 
ler. 

The first brother that ever preached in the 
State (or territory as it was then called) 
that we have any account of was Eld. Ja- 
cc>b Miller. He came from Bear Creek, 
near Dayton, Ohio, and preached to those 
members occasionally. In the year 1809 
elders Jacob Miller and John Hart, with 
tile assistance of Ero. Bolton, organized the 
church on the borders of the Fourmile 
Creek, from which the church took the 
name Fourmile congregation in the above- 
named county. John Moyer and Daniel 
Miller were chosen to the ministry, Chris- 
topher Witter and Joseph Kingry were 
chosen to the deacon's office. 

Some four years after the organization 
of the church Bro. Baltzer Lybrook was 
chosen to the ministry. The church in- 
creased very fast. Some years after the 
organization of the church, the members 
bcmg scattered over a large territory, in 
council the members thought it would be 
p.ood to have two districts, which was done , 
in peace and harmony, calling the new dis- 
trict Lower Fourmile congregation. About 
forty-six years ago the last ministers of the 
Lower Fourmile church moved away to 
other fields of labor. Daniel Miller, who 
was called to the ministry when the first 
organization was effected, moved to South 
Bend. Indiana, taking with him some twen- 
ty members from the lower congregation.

I will give the names of those ministers 
elected in the Lower Fourmile congrega- 
tion: Bro. John Whiteneck elected to the 
ministry in 1842, moved in 1847 to Wabash 
County, Indiana ; Joseph McCarty, moved 
to Hamilton County, Indiana; Daniel Mil- 
ler, moved to Monroe County, Iowa; John 
Hansel, moved (I believe) to Appanoose 
County, Iowa. These ministers were 
elected in the Lower Fourmile church. I 
cannot ,^ive date of the election of any of 
these Brethren except Brb. John White- 
neck, Bro. John Moyer, elected in the first 
organization, moved west. I cannot tell 
where he located. 

About forty years ago the members of the 
lower church desired to be united with the 
old church again, which was unanimously 
agreed to. Since that time there is but one 
congregation. 

The names of the ministers elected in 
the Upper Fourmile congregation are as 
follows : The first brethren elected after the 
organization of the church were Baltzer 
Lybrook, William Moss, Abraham Moss, 
Daniel B rower. 

I cannot give any date of their election; 
the rest of the ministers I can give date of 
their election. Heil Hamilton, Nov. i, 1845, 
Jacob Rife, Sept. 16, 1852; Alfred Moore, 
May 16, 1862; Cary Toney and William Mc- 
Whorter, Sept. 16, 1876; Edward M. Cobb, 
June 20, 1891 ; Samuel Paten, Oct. 8, 1892; 
Frederick Vind and Charles Quick, Dec. 7, 
1809. Bro. Baltzer Lybrook died about 
1830. Bro. William Moss moved to Wa- 
bash County, Indiana, Oct. i, 1838; was or- 
dained elder in 1834. Bro. Heil Hamilton 
moved to Howard County, Indiana, soon 
r.lter he was elected to the ministry. Bro. 
Abraham Moss (deceased in August, i860) 
was an elder about twenty-five years. 
Daniel Brower (deceased Feb. 3, 1891) min- 
ister forty-nine years, elder twenty-five 
years. William McWhorter (deceased) 
ordained elder Nov. 20, 1891. Alfred 
Moore withdrew Jan. 21, 1882, and identi- 
fied himself with the Old Order Brethren, 
Edward M, Cobb was granted letter of 
membership Aug. 3I, 1895 ; moved to North 
Manchester, Ind. At this time there are 
five ministers, two of them elders, one in 
the second degree and two in the first de- 
gree. Jacob Rife and Cary Toney, elders, 



Samuel Paten, second degree, Charles 
Quick and Frederick Vind in first degree. 

Deacons elected after the church organi- 
zation : Samuel Kingry, David Rinehart, 
Henry Eikenberry, Daniel Eikenberry, Jo- 
nas Fiant, Sept. 16, 1852; John Fiant, May 
16, 1862; Martin Witter, May 16, 1862; 
Abraham Rife and Isaac Hart, Nov. 17, 
1866; Baltzer Lybrook and Peter Fiant, 
Sept. 16, 1870; John Brower, Henry Young, 
Francis Hendrix, Oct. i, 1885 ; Charles 
Quick and David Rinehart, Oct. 8, 1892 ; 
John Sheets and Elmer Fiant, June 6, 1896. 
We have six deacons yet to assist in the 
work of the church. 

Nearly one century has passed since the 
organization of the church, and only four 
ministers have deceased in the church. 
Tlius it is seen that the church has not been 
idle in the work of spreading the Gospel 
and building up churches. Nearly all the 
ministers that have moved from this con- 
gregation have organized or been instru- 
mental in organizing churches. 

In the history of this congregation there 
is one feature worthy of note. There was 
never a committee sent by District or An- 
nual Meeting, nor called for by the church. 
In the last forty-eight years there were two 
elders called in twice to assist us in settling 
our troubles. But we have called on our 
adjoining elders frequently to assist us in 
holding elections and instalhng officers in 
their office. V/e are truly glad that we 
never advertised ourselves in that way. 
We do not speak of this boastingly, but 
truthfully, believing it is due to the church 
in giving its history, to let the Brotherhood 
know that the old Fourmile congregation 
can show up such a record. In conclusion 
i Vvill say that peace and harmony prevail 
with her members, who are laboring for the 
upbuilding of the church and the spreading 
of the Gospel.

THE BATH ROOM. 



Do you know a bath room in your house 
is worth more to your family than a par- 
lor? Have both if you prefer, but do not 
fail to arrange for a large, convenient bath 
room. You should keep your body clean. 
Soap and water are plenty, and ought to be 
used freely.

doctors, I gave up in despair. About this time Mr. Suess asked me to try a bottle of Blood Vitalizer. In

SKETCHES FROM THE LIFE OF ELD. 
Q. W. CRIPE. 



BY CORA CRIPE. 

George W. Cripe was born in Darke 
County, Ohio, May 23, 1833 ; but in his early 
boyhood the family moved to Elkhart Coun- 
ty, Indiana. He was married to Barbara 
Shively, Christmas Day, 1852, at New 
Pans, and to them were born twelve chil- 
dren, six of whom were "over there "to wel- 
come him home ! He united with the 
church in 1857 and was elected to the min- 
istry Tn the Solomon's Creek congregation 
in 1861. He was ordained to the eldership 
about the year 1868, in the Washington con- 
gregation, and served the church faithfully 
unto life's close. 

The church was the dearest organization 
on earth to him, and nothing was too great 
a sacrifice to make for her. Thrice was he 
cr-'.'fted 10 go to war, but each time he 
parted with everything he owned, rather 
than disobey God and the church. He la- 
bored arduously and earnestly for the pros- 
perity of Zion, praying often with many 
tears that she might be aroused to her priv- 
ilege along missionary lines. 

Jn the days when Sunday schools were 
having a struggle for existence he wielded 
a strong influence in their behalf, and over- 
came many prejudices by his earnest ap- 
peals for^thc children's rights. He was so 
fond of a child that it pained him much to 
see it neglected along this line. Many 
schools were born through his efforts and 
many children were brought to Christ 
through the schools. 

I remember several years ago, soon after 
VvC moved to Illinois in 1884, how he used to 
take great loads of the town children to 
the new Sunday school just organized. 
With what pleasure those children looked 
forward to the Sabbath day, when Grandpa 
Cripe was sure to come with his big spring 
wagon! It meant several hours in the 
beautiful country, with him whom they all 
loved dearly in their Sunday school. 

He had a passionate love for music, and 
one of the most precious memories I retain 
is the home-coming of the children, for then 
all would gather about the organ and spend 
hours singing the good old songs. It was 
a source of never-ending delight to him. 



He was never satisfied if one sat back in 
the room and did not help. No excuse 
would let you off. Was it headache you 
complained of? or toothache? It mattered 
ncr. "Just come and help sing and you'll 
feel better," was his characteristic remark. 
This music-loving nature thus implanted in 
each child is one of the best legacies left us ! 

His sense of humor was keen, and it 
afforded him much innocent pleasure to play 
a good joke. He was guarded in this when 
v.ith strangers, but in the home, and with 
near neighbors, one often had to own him- 
self beaten. When a child, how I used 
often to puzzle my little brain in trying to 
" get even " with father ! But while he de- 
lighted in these at times, yet when it was 
time for work there was to be no idling, 
for his motto, though unexpressed, was 
''Work while you work, and play while you 
play." 

His strong physique enabled him to do a 
great deal of hard work in a day. He was 
a carpenter by trade and with his tools fash- 
ioned many a pleasant dwelling. 

In his younger days he preached the Gos- 
pel with power through the States dur- 
nig the winter, and built houses for a liv- 
ing between times. Thus he traveled ex- 
tensively among the churches, and was in 
touch with the best and ablest men. 

The last six years of his life were given 
entirely to church work. He was placed in 
charge of several mission points in the west- 
ern part of Illinois, and there labored to 
build up the cause. No churches were quite 
so near to his heart as these, and his only 
concern was for their prosperity ! 

He retained his usual vigor until about 
one year before his death, often walkmg 
many miles through the rough country in 
order to reach his people. His one great 
desire was that God would take him before 
lie became childish and a burden to any, 
and God lovingly granted it ! 

In the few months of his last illness he 
was a great sufferer, but was resigned to 
God's will, and when informed that he could 
never be well again said it was all right, 
and was anxious to pass over and be "at 
rest." 

He closed this life July 22, 1901, after 
sixty-eight years of active life; yet his mem- 
orv and life work live on.

THE COUNTRY BOY. 



BY D. EMMERT. 

No boy ever need regret that he was born 
in the country and reared on a farm. He 
may lack the keenness and polish of his city 
cousin. He may be embarrassed by his 
own awkwardness and feel that he is at a 
hopeless disadvantage in the race; but the 
coimtry boy has the advantage of a wider 
range of practical ideas. From the very 
first his little services are in demand. He 
becomes at once a part of the force that is 
mnking for home comfort and prosperity, 
and feels the independence of one who is 
helping to support himself and add to the 
general store. 

The country boy is likely to regard his 
lif^ as one of drudgery, and such it may be 
if he loses interest in his surroundings or 
is pressed with a continued round of duty. 

There is something heroic in the coun- 
try boy's struggle with the elements. Rain 
and snow and sleet only brace his courage. 
The garnering of the crops, the housing and 
feeding of the domestic animals, the gather- 
ing and preparation of the winter fuel, give 
a purpose and zest to his toil. 

Then there is the long tramp, sometimes 
of miles, to the district school ; lessons 
learned before and after long hours of la- 
bor. Is it any wonder there are keen wits 
developing all outside of graded systems 
and m defiance of pedagogical order? It 
is the intensity of purpose with which the 
mind acts under the influence of vigorous 
health and the conscious value of time that 
accounts for these results. So from ihe 
farms is being supplied a stream of active 
world workers, — men not afraid to do their 
duty and bubbling over with energy and* 
ambition. 

From the little red schoolhouses aspiring 
youth come into our colleges and schools of 



higher grade. Some are seeking an edu- 
cation as a means of emancipation from the 
drudgery of labor. Others come with a 
true thirst for knowledge. They find their 
way into the professions and business 
world ; but few go back to the farm. 

^Vhat an ideal thing it would be for the 
young men trained in science and holding 
llic ke> to nature's mysteries and beauties, 
10 go back to live broad, cultured and qui- 
et hves in the midst of the most delightful 
environment in which God has ever placed 
man I 

Touch the country-bred boy, now the 
merchant prince, or the successful profes- 
sional man, and how responsive he becomes 
to every suggestion of rural life. The same 
cannot be said of boys reared in the midst 
of any other surroundings. It is the con- 
tact with nature that makes the indelible 
impression upon his life. No greater gain 
could ccme to the country at large than to 
promote the love and appreciation of rural 
life. Hi-alth, happiness, purity and peace 
are the natural inheritance of those who 
dwell surrounded by fresh air, beautiful 
scenes, bright skies and pure social influ- 
ences. 




BAPTIZING AT SAMARIA.* 



A SHORT distance south of the ruins of the 
city of Samaria, in Palestine, is a large, 
never-failing spring, strong enough to run 
a mill or two. The spring gives rise to 
quite a stream of water, and it is here that 
the converts made by Philip's preaching 
were likely baptized. Here may be found 
water enough to immerse thousands of 
people. It must have been an interesting 
sight to see Philip, followed by hundreds of 
people, walk down to this stream and im- 
merse those who believed in the Gospel as 
presented by the evangelist.

Brethren's Family Almanac. 



OUR FIRST WEEKLY PAPER AND 
ITS EDITORS. 



Bir JAS. A. SELL. 

The Christian Family Companion, the 
iirst weekly paper of the Brethren church, 
which after a number of changes developed 
ink) the Gospel Messenger, was born in 
'J y rone, Pa., in 1864. H. R, Holsinger, the 
proprietor and editor, had spent some time 
in the Gospel Visitor office as a printer with 
C'kl Brother Henry Kurtz prior to Brother 
Quinter's connection with the Visitor. He 
h^id but little money, experience or popu- 
larity. But with natural talent, and a de- 
sire on the part of the church for a weekly 
paper, the new enterprise had flattering 
prospects. Its growth was slow, but sure. 
The begnining was humble indeed, and to 
those who were connected with the work it 
IS both interesting and satisfactory to follow 
the windings of its career. 

When the writer first entered the office 
the publishing house was a small two-story 
building, the upper being the composing, 
the lower the press, folding and mailing 
room. The sanctum was nowhere, and yet 
everywhere. The manuscript was kept in 
a small box and carried home nightly by 
the editors to be examined for publication. 

The first papers were printed on a hand 
press, but that was too laborious, so the pro- 
prietor ventured to invest in an old, if not 
worn-out, power press. To operate this a 
one-horse tread power was connected. As 
time advanced the business increased, and 
;i more spacious building was erected and 
better supplies were added. 

The Pious Vouth — as its name indicates — 
was started for the benefit of young people. 
It died for want of support. The Herald, 
a local paper and the first one that became 
a success in the town, was started in the 
same office. Soon after it changed hands 
and developed into a daily. The Breth- 
ren's Almanac and the Full Report of An- 
nual Meeting were also offsprings of this 
office. 

Through the influence of Bro. D. M. 
Holsinger, father of the editor, the writer 
became associate editor through the fol- 
lowing circumstances: In the spring of 1866 
a colcn> from Bhiir County, Pennsylvania, 
composed principally of the Sells, emi- 



grated to Clinton County, Missouri. A 
large percentage were members of the 
church, and made choice of Missouri 
through the calls in the Companion from 
me Shoemakers and Ellenbergers who were 
anxious to have members come and help 
build up a church. Among the new colony 
uas only one preacher, and he a silent one, 
i. e., he never preached. The writer had 
been elected to the ministry while yet in 
hi -5 teens, and was teaching school at the 
time. He was strongly solicited to join 
tb.e colony and be the pioneer preacher in 
this new field. The prospect seemed im- 
mense, and dreaming of future greatness 
and usefulness he consented to go. It was 
decided to finish the school term, and then 
follow his kindred into this far-away land. 

The time was drawing on to say farewell 
to youthful associations and enter upon an 
untried work amid scenes that were new. 
At this junction the episode alluded to 
above broke ,in. D. M. Holsinger, having 
perfect knowledge of what was going on, 
said : " Churches in the West that are com- 
posed principally of emigrants have among 
them some very peculiar people, and it 
takes a preacher of experience to handle 
them, and I have fears of your success in 
your new field. If you give it up I will 
get for you the position of associate edi- 
tor of the Companion." (Up to this time 
the proprietor did all the literary work and 
bookkeeping himself.) 

This was fairly heaping honors on one 
v'ho had some taste, but no ability or ex- 
perience in literary work. The offer was 
accepted and entered upon at once. This 
was in the earlier days of the paper, when 
the subscription list was yet small and con- 
veniences few. 

As the two editors came in contact in the 
severe tug of business, there was found to 
be quite a contrast in their dispositions. 
But somehow they got along peaceably. The 
conservative sentiments of the one, and the 
progressive, restless spirit of the other ex- 
erted a reciprocal influence that was health- 
ful. An attachment was formed that nev- 
er was broken even by the unfortunate di- 
vision of the churcli that landed them in 
opposing parties. 

The editor developed rapidly. His writ- 
ings were clear and bristling with points.

It is now ready to bake. Two of the 
tins will go in any ordinary-sized oven at a 
time. Put in oven as fast as ready, hav- 
ing; the oven previously heated to a steady 
hent, hotter than for other bread or for 
I'ics, but not red-hot. Much depends on 
the baking. Bake from six to eight min- 
utes, but do not brown it. Put each cake 
on the former one to cool. What is 
trimmed off of the cakes to shape them will 
make the seventh cake. This recipe will 
make enough for about two hundred and 
fifty communicants. 



KEEP COOL. 



This is the season of the year when peo- 
ple are overcome with the heat, and a few 
simple instructions, if followed carefully, 
will prevent much trouble. In the first 
place, keep cool mentally. Do not begin the 
day with fretting and fuming. A day that 
promises to be an excessively warm one 
should be met in the morning with an ex- 
cessive coolness on the part of him who 
would escape being overheated or over- 
come. 

Do n't eat too much breakfast, and that 
not of the heating order. Dress lightly, as 
much so as is consistent with decency, and 
make no concessions to any fool fashions 
demanding uncomfortable clothes. Go 
about your work deliberately, and keep on 
the shady side of everything on your way. 
Drink but little water, and that not ice-cold. 
The less water you drink early in the day, 
tiie stronger you will be at night. Sit down 
wiicnever you can. In other v/ords, keep 
C...0I. 

In case you are in danger of being over- 
come, at the first sign stop work and lie 
down in the shade. If there is sunstroke, 
so called, the treatment is in putting the 
I)atient on his back, loosening up the cloth- 
mg all c round, pouring cold, ice-cold, water 
on the wrists and over the face and neck. 
Here is the unvarying sign of sunstroke: 
The skin is hot and dry. As long as you 
are sweating freely no sunstroke is in sight. 
The moment the skin becomes dry and hot, 
stop right there, no matter what you are 
doing. 

If smitten with that terror, prickly heat, 
make a strong solution of baking soda, a 



heapmg spoonful to a cup of water, and 
mop all the parts affected. This will, in 
ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, effect 
a cure. If not. take internally a solution of 
cream of tartar, one small spoonful to a 
glass of water, dissolved and swallowed in 
varying doses, though you might take it all 
at once and do no harm. But an ounce of 
prevention is worth a wagon load of cure. 
Keep cool. — Inglenook. 



A REMARKABLE CLOCK. 



One of the most wonderful curiosities of 
the age has just been accomplished by a 
poor German watchmaker, says the Scien- 
tific American. It is a combinatiou of an 
astronomical and calendar clock. The idea 
was suggested to the watchmaker by the 
famous clock at Strasburg Cathedral twenty- 
four years ago. The ingenious achievement 
of the poor German artisan represents no 
less than nineteen years' continual labor, 
and it is stated to be more wonderful than 
the horological monument at Strasburg, 
which prompted him to the effort. He was 
severely handicapped in his work by the 
lack of funds, but he devoted the whole of 
his savings to the task, completely ruining 
himself. The clock is inclosed in a glass 
case so that every movement can be seen. 
It cpnsists of 2,200 parts, 112 of which are 
wheels. The clock indicates the seconds, 
minutes, hours, dates, the days of the week, 
months, and the seasons of the year, the 
pictures of the signs of the zodiac, the sun, 
moon and stars, and their rising and setting, 
as well as the exact position of the celestial 
bodies. It shows besides the moon's phases, 
and the eclipses of the sun and moon. The 
calendar is the most remarkable feature, 
since it is perpetual, with perfect accuracy. 
At the beginning of the year it adjusts by 
itself the statements of the astronomical 
practitioners in explanation of the everlast- 
ing calendar, as well as Easter and the 
changeable festival days of the coming year. 
A glass ball, representing the spherical 
globe exactly, shows the movements and 
position of the planets Mercury, Venus, 
Earth and Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and 
Uranus. The work is enhanced by over one 
hundred movable pictures and figures. Ev- 
ery quarter of an hour the figure of a guard- 



L

ian angel appears on the left side of the 
principal field. The striking of the quarters 
is done by two angels standing in the recess 
on the left, while in the sixth recess two 
figures at a time, representing the four ages 
of man, are changing alternately. On che 
right side of the principal field the Angel of 
Death advances, pointing with his scythe to 
the dial plate. When the full hour strikes, 
the center angel of the second recess ap- 
pears holding an hour glass, while the angel 
on the right side above is sounding a trum- 
pet. Under the roof an allegorical figure 
represents symbolically the right season of 
the year, while above in the principal field 
the guiding star of the year appears. On 
the left side of the clock cabinet stands a 
cock, which five minutes before noon beats 
its wings, stoops its neck, opens its bill and 
crows three times. 

When the picture shows " Spring," there 
appears a cuckoo above; " Summer " is rep- 
resented by a quail, which issues forth on the 
left side, both calling seven times. A bull 
lying at the feet of St. Luke the Evangelist 
roars to symbolize "Autumn," and " Winter" 
is indicated by a lion lying close to St. Mark. 
Every time the clock strikes twelve, Christ, 
bending his head, appears with his twelve 
Apostles, and a monk standing in the portal 
above rings his " Ave." 

The clock contains a small chime which 
plays for five minutes after the striking of 
an even hour, the melodies changing and 
each lasting one minute. The work has 
twelve little bells, and on the roller there 
are 997 pins which make the music. 



A CASTOR=OIL TREAT. 



Mr. Perry was an old Southern gentle- 
man, exceedingly polite. He would go out 
of , his way at any time to avoid offending a 
neighbor or a friend. One day a neighbor 
met him on the street with " Hallo, Mr. Per- 
ry, I was just going in to get a drink. Come 
in and take something." 

"Thank you, Mr. , I don't care for 

anything," was the answer. 

" But come in and take something, just for 
sociability's sake." 

"Now I want to be sociable; but I can't 
drink with you." 



"All right, if you don't want to be socia- 
ble, I '11 go without drinking, growled the 
friend, and he silently walked along in the 
direction in which Mr. Perry was traveling. 

Presently the pair drew near a drug store, 

when Mr. Perry broke out with, " Mr. , 

I 'm not feeling at all well to-day, and I 
think I '11 go in this drug store and get some 
castor-oil. Won't you join me?" 

" What? a dose of castor-oil? " 

" Yes." 

" Naw; I hate the ^stuff," saying which a 
chill went over the man, as visible in its ef- 
fects to Mr. Perry as if the ague had seized 
him on the street. 

" But I want you to take a glass of oil with 
me just to be sociable, you know." 

The friend still refused, when Mr. Perry 
said: 

" Your sociable whiskey is just as distaste- 
ful to me as my sociable oil is to you. Don't 
you think I 've as much reason to be offended 
with you as you have with me? " 

The pair heartily shook hands, the dia- 
logue was circulated in Covington, and Mr. 
Perry was never invited to drink again. 



THE SHEEP THAT WAS LOST. 



On the Aletusch Glacier I saw a strange, a 
beautiful sight — the parable of the "Ninety 
and Nine," repeated to the letter. One day 
we were making our way with ice-axe and 
alpenstock down the glacier, when we ob- 
served a flock of sheep following their shep- 
herd over the intricate windings betweert 
crevices, and so passing from the pastures 
on the one side of the glacier to the pastures 
on the other. The flock had numbered two 
hundred all told, but on the way one sheep 
got lost. One of the shepherds, in his Ger- 
man patois, appealed to us if we had seen 
it. Fortunately one of the party had a field 
glass. With its aid we discovered it up 
amid a tangle of brush-wood, on the rocky 
mountain side. 

It was beautiful to see how the shepherd, 
without a word, left his hundred and ninety- 
nine sheep out in the glacier waste, knowing 
they would stand there perfectly still and 
safe, and went clambering back after the 
lost sheep until he found it. And he actually 
put it on his shoulders and " returned re- 
joicing." Here was our Lord's parable 
enacted before our eyes.

For the convenience of the Gish Fund Department we have found it necessary to arrange the Ministe- 
rial List alphabetically instead of under States. 

Kept in our large fire-proof vaults is a systematically-arranged file, containing a card, 4x6 inches, for 
each minister in the Brotherhood. On each minister's card are his name and address. If he changes his 
address, the change is noted on his card. If he orders a book, as provided for by the Gish Fund, that is 
entered. When a minister dies, or is relieved of his office, his card is removed from the file. If a brother 
is elected to the ministry a new card, containing his name and address, is placed in the file. 

The following list is set up from these cards. Should any mistakes be discovered, write us so we can 
correct the card list. The corrections thus made will appear in the Almanac lisi for 1903.

An Old Landmark 





The cut on this page is a reproduction of an oil painting by David Emmert, of Hunt- 
ingdon, Pa., representing the "Old Fahrney Meetinghouse" near Beaver Creek, Wash- 
ington County, Md. Built over a century ago, it was for years an "old landmark" and 
closely connected with the early history of the Brethren church. 

In this meetinghouse old Dr. Peter Fahrney worshiped, and in its silent graveyard his 
remains lie at rest. His son, Elder Dr. Jacob Fahrney, also preached here. The cut has 
been supplied by the grandson and namesake of old Dr. Peter Fahrney and son of Elder 
Dr. Jacob Fahrney, who is well known to our readers as the present manufacturer of Dr. 
Peter's Blood Vitalizer, and whose achievements in the field of medicine are all well 
worthy of comment. 

The old Scriptural saying: " Seest thou a man diligent in his business, he shall stand 
before kings," has certainly been exemplified in his case. That he has been diligent and 
persevering is shown by the length of time that he has applied himself to his chosen work, 
soon forty-two years. A forceful reminder of this is found in the following incident: The 
Gospel Messenger contained, several years ago, an article from Dr. Fahrney, of Chicago, 
offering a reward for the earliest copy of the Gospel Visitor obtainable, containing his ad- 
vertisement and published prior to 1863. The number of competitors for the reward was 
astonishing and shows how faithfully the early editions of our church paper had been pre- 
served. 

The winner of the reward was Sister Sarah Ebie, of Sterling, Ohio, who produced the 
July number of the year i860, containing the advertisement. 

That his success is attributed not only to perseverance, but to the merits of Dr. Pe= 
ter's Blood Vitalizer, is evidenced by its popularity and the astonishing demand for it to- 
day. Information regarding the merits of this remedy was originally confined largely 
among our people, but time wrought a change and the Blood Vitalizer is now known and 
in constant use in almost every country in the civilized world. 

When one considers that Dr. Fahrney has not placed one line of advertisement in a 
foreign newspaper, and one sees wagonloads of boxes of the Blood Vitalizer marked to 
distant foreign ports, one can not help but realize the force of advertising which goes 
from mouth to mouth, and the truth of the saying that " merit counts." 

The potency of Dr. Fahrney's axiom, which he has often expressed, has, no doubt, had 
an important bearing on his great success. " When I set out to manufacture medicine, I 
made two resolutions,— to devote my whole time and energy to my work, and to prepare 
nothing but what was strictly first class." 

Full particulars regarding Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer can be had by addressing 

Dr. PETER FAHRNEY,

Brethren' s Family Almanac. 6i 

The Gospel Messenger for 1902 

A large sixteen-page religious weekly, published in the interest of the Brethren 
church. Price, per annum, $1.50. Subscriptions may begin at any time. 

Every Subscriber Gets a Copy of 
this Almanac Free ! 

We are safe m saying that the Gospel Messenger is the only religious paper in 
America that fearlessly contends for the whole Gospel. 

It is the only church paper published by the authority of the General Conference. In 
its columns, from week to week, will be found the Church News from all parts of the 
Brotherhood. It will contain news from Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, India, and even 
from the Bible Lands. 

It contains contributions from the best writers and the best scholars in the Fraternity. 
Its writers are numbered by the hundreds, and only the best matter they send in is pub- 
lished. 

Wherever Known The Messenger is Regarded as the Cleanest 
Religious Paper Published. 

It is highly original, and the names of the writers are given with their articles. Our 
chief aim is to furnish a paper sound in doctrine, pure in tone, elevating in character, and 
peculiarly characteristic of the Brethren or Dunker church. 

Thousands think that the first page alone is worth the price of the paper. Here the 
leading events and movements in the world are noted and written up in a way that is 
highly entertaining and instructive. 

Much attention is given to the discoveries now being made in the Bible lands. Three 
of the editors of the Messenger have visited these lands and are therefore prepared to 
write up the discoveries and developments in such a manner as to be easily understood 
by the common reader. 

The editorial department covers a wide religious field, the purpose being to consider 
every question that may be of special interest to a large class of earnest readers. Special 
attention is given to the plain duties set forth in the New Testament, and to the impor- 
tance of restoring the primitive order of worship and encouraging the higher life. 

Our regular correspondence from India, Switzerland, France, Denmark and Sweden 
adds much to the interest of the Messenger. At this time we are publishing a series of 
letters from Palestine, and other parts of the Bible lands. 

If you have not yet seen the Messenger, send for a sample copy, or subscribe at 
once. You will find the journal well worth $1.50 per annum.

Brethren's Family Almanac. 



Brayton's Certain Horn Preventer. 



It Prevents the Growth of Horns on Calves. 

It never fails to do the work if applied as directed. You can't afford to raise cattle 
with horns when it costs less than one cent per head to stop them. 

SEE WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT IT ! 



Derinda Center, III. 
Dear Sir:— In reply to your letter will say that I 
have been selling your Horn Preventer for four years. 
It gives good satisfaction when used right. Some 
farmers that bought it from me four years ago have 
some left yet. It don't take much to do the work. 

Chas. Hood. 

Macedon, Ohio, March lo, 1897. 
Dear Sir .—I have used your Certain Horn Preventer 
for more than five years, and find it a success. Find 
enclosed pay for one bottle. Isaac Lehman. 



MuNSON, Ohio, Feb. 9, 1898. 
Dear 6'«>;— Have used your Horn Preventer for 
three years and can give it agood recommendation. I 
have calls to come from two to five miles to dehorn 
calves for customers. They all say it is the nicest 
thing out. What is the price by the dozen? 

G. E. RoBB. 

Churubusco, Ind., May 30, 1893. 
Dear Sir:— I have dehorned for all my neighbors 
with your Certain Horn Preventer. Everybody seems 
to want a bottle. Charles F. Duglay. 



Each bottle contains sufficient for over one hundred head, but is worth all it costs for 
use on five or six. Price, 75 cents per bottle. Sent, prepaid, to any address upon receipt 
of price. Agents wanted everywhere at big profit. Send for terms.

Brethren s Family Almanac. * 63 



THE INQLENOOK. 



It is superfluous to tell th^ Brethren church what the Inglenook mag- 
azine is, and what it stands for in literature. It is not the only magazine in 
the country, it is only ONE of many, but it is 2. good one, as far as it goes. 
That's been the most frequent complaint about it — that there is not enough 
of it. 

It started less than two years ago at this writing, and from a small 
number of subscribers it has worked its way into the thousands, and what 
is more to the point, it is still growing. 

It Ought to Be in Every Home where 
This Almanac Goes. 

It is in thousands of homes, and will be in many more. And there is a 
good reason for it. 

Why do so many people like the Inglenook? Because it is always 
bright and entertaining. There's always something new in it, something 
you never knew before. It doesn't get monotonous. Each issue is as 
good as the preceding one, and sometimes a little better. That's why peo- 
ple like it. 

It Is Only 

One Dollar a Year. 

And subscriptions can begin at any time. Each subscriber gets the 
Inglenook Cook Book, of a thousand recipes, all by sisters in the church. 
The magazine will be sent on receipt of the price, and will come to you 
weekly for a whole year. The Cook Book will be sent as soon as the mon- 
ey is received. Thousands of women consult the Cook Book, and it is a 
little the best thing of its kind to be had anywhere. There will be some 
wonderfully attractive features added during the year. Try it. Send in 
your subscription at once. It's worth while.
